The Shed brings a celebration of the British seasonal wild food right to our tables. Located on the edge of Hyde Park, right behind the Czech Embassy, it is a hidden gem every Londoner should try.
In Czech, we have a saying that love goes through the stomach. The Brits believe that a way to a man’s heart if through his stomach. Well, I am not a man and I don’t particularly trust sayings. But having one meal (in the form of a variety of small sharing plates) at The Shed in South Ken turns every habitual cynic into a positive believer. Food is fun and we must celebrate it every day!
“having one meal [here] turns every habitual cynic into a positive believer”
Everything here is locally-sourced (predominantly from a farm in my beloved Sussex) and served one by one in a non-consecutive order. It helps one enjoy and indulge every bite of the meal crafted by the Mother Nature (and a skilled chef at the back of the restaurant).
The place invites for chatter, laughter and to sample some of the most delicious wines (surprisingly) produced in the UK. It is so easy to fall in love with the simplest of foods here and to completely lose track of time. But what does it matter if the longer you spend there the longer you will remember how to enjoy life and celebrate the beauty of the simplest of cuisines? From a perfectly seasoned guacamole spread on the oven-baked bread to the goat’s cheese with honey-coated almonds and the rainbow-coloured tomato salad, these sharers are to die for.
“You will remember how to enjoy life and celebrate the beauty of the simplest of cuisines”
This restaurant awakens a foodie in every one of us! And if you become obsessed with this place, worry not, the menu changes regularly so there is always plenty of new meals and ingredients to fall in love with.
